High end cabin and perfectly decorated!

  • 5 of 5

We took our 4 kids here for some fishing and hiking in the surrounding area. We rent homes every year in the Florida keys and various other locations. We are generally very picky with places we stay. Let me just say that we have ZERO complaints about this house. Private community on the river with deer walking around and geese swimming in the river.

We walked in and were greeted with fresh muffins which were delicious. The house is decorated with fish and wild game mounts, tasteful art, and high end antiques and furniture. I wouldn't be surprised if an interior decorator was used as it was very nice with great personal touches. Appliances were high end, granite counter tops etc. Very Clean house.

Since we have 6 in our party layout and space is important. The house has a very spacious feel to it and turned out to be very comfortable for us. We even had some family over for dinner one night and still wasn't cramped. Speaking of dinner I love to cook and one thing that was nice was that the kitchen had everything you could need to cook. Even spices, condiments in fridge, butter, etc. We made sure to replace what we used but it was a really nice touch.

Outside was a gas and charcoal grill. a nice fire pit(wood was provided) and nice patio tables on a deck overlooking the river. This lead down to a nice dock right on the river that was perfect. We are big fisherman and was pleasantly surprised to learn the fishing was good right off the dock. The kids caught nice trout both browns and rainbows up to 16 inches right off the dock every day. About 75 yards downstream from the dock was a productive stretch where we fly fished a lot and also caught numerous browns and rainbows though the week.

What was really great though about the house was the location. Less than 10 minutes from Heber Springs which is a great little town with good food and nice shops and people. We were 10 minutes from greers ferry lake, the hatchery, and numerous hiking trails with waterfalls. Within an hour was blanchard springs cave, more hiking and waterfalls, and the beautiful town of mountain view. We even traveled to Dry Run creek one day where my kids landed trout over 5lbs which is incredible!

The kids loved the trip and it was perfect for seeing the beautiful Ozarks. Bridget the owner was very accommodating and great to deal with. I would give this area and this house my highest recommendation. We will be back for sure!

This was the best vacation we have ever had. We loved the the place so much we only left once for supplies at the local Walmart and only needed a few things since the home was so well stocked.

Heber hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Little Red River Retreat is a perfect spot to get away from the hustle and bustle. The home is tucked away at the end of a private road, offering privacy and a peaceful setting. The accommodations were exactly as described, and Bridget was fantastic to work with! She promptly answered my many questions during the booking process, and, when I texted her upon our arrival after realizing I had overlooked a key check-in detail, she responded immediately. :) As several reviews mention, her welcome muffins are ah-mazing! Like ask for the recipe and hope she shares so you can dazzle anyone who visits your home.

The kitchen had everything you could possibly need to make meals. Bridget truly has thought of everything so that all guests need to do is bring their clothes and feel right at home. Our family thoroughly enjoyed several (mostly) lighthearted Wii Sports contests.

We really appreciated being able to take the dogs on our trip, too. The outdoor kennel was fantastic for the days we went to the lake or hiking and were gone for more hours than we wanted to leave them in their kennels inside. The dogs thoroughly enjoyed romping along the (cold!) river, chasing imaginary squirrels in the huge front yard, and going for walks down the private road.

Bridget's check-out procedures were minimal -- we've stayed at other properties that essentially require you to clean the place top to bottom and wash all the laundry before you leave -- and the 11 a.m. checkout time is among one of the more generous ones. That said, because we're well-trained and Bridget truly makes it feel like home, we wanted to return the hospitality by tidying up and doing a load of towels to help with the turnaround for the guests arriving that afternoon. As another review mentioned, Bridget released our security deposit the same day instead of waiting the usual 7-10 days, so that was also very much appreciated.

I would absolutely recommend Little Red River Retreat to anyone looking for a peaceful, well, retreat!

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location, very private, quiet, well furnished, clean, open floor plan with plenty of seating, nice sized bedrooms, great relaxing outdoor space. The dock is amazing. Bridget was wonderful, so prompt answering questions and refunding deposit immediately. We were in Heber Springs for a pickleball tournament however we are already making plans with our friends to return for a vacation. Heber Springs a beautiful area & this VRBO is the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors yet be close to town. Highly recommend!!

Secluded river house

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family. It is in a secluded beautiful location directly on the Little Red. The home was clean and spacious. The linens were high quality, and nicely furnished. The property is stunning. Beautiful views, we saw deer everyday

The dock was a perfect place to sit out and relax and fish. We will definitely be repeat visitors here.
